Utilising the benefits of high performance steels (HPS) and infill Materials for critical Project Titleinfrastructure protection (CIP) against extreme loads

Grant


Scheme


  • Discovery Projects

Abstract


  • This project will provide an improved understanding of the behaviour of structural elements subjected to impact and blast loads. The structural engineering community will benefit from the state of the art knowledge whilst the general community will benefit from the increased safety of critical infrastructure which will provide greater security against physical and financial losses. This project extends on work conducted by the first Chief and Partner Investigator in a completed ARC Discovery Project. It is also directly related to research being carried out by the Second Chief Investigator as part of the ARC, Research Network for a Secure Australia
